Letter to the Editor

Switched to silence

San Luis ObispoFebruary 20, 2013 

Thanks to Bob Cuddy for his Feb. 16 report on the format change at KYNS. He expressed my sentiments precisely.

I always used to listen to KYNS when I was working in my yard or driving. I was disappointed one day to find on 1340 a program purporting to be a “news show without an agenda” in place of the intelligent and provocative talk of Thom Hartman. For the remaining minutes I wasted listening, there was a Fox News report and the announcement of an upcoming interview with someone from the American Enterprise Institute. So much for no agenda.

Thankfully, I was in my car so I could pick up “Fresh Air,” which now airs under the new KCBX format. Lamentably, the KCBX signal is not strong enough to make listening enjoyable at my home, so I now garden in silence.
